« Transatlantic Educators Dialogue Program, 2021 »

Who ? Teachers and School Administrators,

Why ? Are you interested in talking to other teachers about educational issues beyond classroom management? Do you get excited about topics such as immigration, youth culture, notions of the "other" in national identity formation, and education in rural vs. urban contexts? Are you curious about the differences in education between European countries and the USA?
If so, we invite you to join a 12-week online program: "Transatlantic Educators Dialogue Program, 2021".

What ? This project is coordinated by the European Union Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We are recruiting teachers in the US and the EU to come together once a week (Sundays 5:00-6:30 pm Greenwich Mean Time, 1-2:30 pm EST) in online sessions to explore a variety of educational topics as they relate to issues of identity and difference.

How ? Participants will meet simultaneously online using the Blackboard Collaborate application; in addition, prior to each session, participants should access an online course website to read materials and post responses related to the week's topic.  

When ? The "Transatlantic Educators Dialogue" (TED) program will begin on February 16, 2021 and will conclude on May 3, 2021. Online sessions are 90 minutes. Weekly attendance is expected and helpful as discussion sessions will be more productive when a variety of perspectives are shared.
Deadline for applications : January 8, 2021. Apply here soon!  Please apply online at TED website or by clicking here by January 8, 2021.

How many ? TEDhas connected more than 500 teachers across the Atlantic since it was first launched in 2010!
There is no application or participation fee for TED. There is no cost to participate. TED is FREE!

Teachers enrolled in the program will receive a Certificate of Completion from the European Union Center at the University of Illinois.
